Stitches and Hos February 2012

Last week was our regular monthly hootenanny.  Once again its great to see so many of you come along to stitch, knit or crochet.

I met Sheila Arthurs, an artist who is working with Friction Arts to create a knitted & crocheted coral reef based on an original project The Hyperbolic Coral Reef which was created and curated by Christine Wertheim and Margaret Wertheim of the Institute for Figuring in Los Angeles. (There will be an opportunity for people to take part, but I couldn’t find anything online to link to).

A big thank you Gemma and Helga for providing sounds to stitch to.  It was the second time they had DJ’ed for our hootenanny, their last outing being exactly one year before.  Even a pile of CD’s without cases wasn’t enough to stop them playing their mix of 80’s pop, Birmingham gems and feel good classics.

Our next monthly hootenanny is on Tuesday 27 March from 7.30pm.  We have sounds to stitch to by Friends of the Stars who’s new album Faith’s Meat Kiosk is out on 23rd April 2012.

Until then here are some pictures from the night
